Re: The marmalade in Fullers

… But I don't think Fuller's actually practice true parti-gyling? I think true "parti-gyle" should be restricted to the old practice of successive mashing and running off from the same grain. No sparging. Whereas Fuller's turn out a single high-gravity runoff and dilute to get different beers Nope,...

Re: The marmalade in Fullers

Would adding a couple ounces of actual marmalade to the fermenter work? I think the description of "marmalade" is more abstract than that? I struggled with it for ages until I dispensed with my idea of marmalade (high fruit content, loads of bitter Seville oranges, probably thick-cut) and thought "...

Not gin clear, but yeap, it's "blonde"! Also a bowl of pistachio nuts just to wind Guy up.

Re: BierMunchers Centennial Blonde

Why would you regard a random web designer in Quebec as some kind of authority on weights and measures? They've obviously got confused between ounce weights and fluid ounce volumes - the former were standardised indirectly in 1959 by an agreement between the various English-speaking countries to cr...

Re: Crisis Brewing

Great post there PB! =D> WA Thanks very much! A few weeks on and the beer did fall bright, but I think I'll have to rethink how I clarify these beers - its taken too long: 20200515_203142_WEB.jpg Still got its outrageous head! Oh aye. The marvellously fragrant hop scent dissipated after about a wee...

Re: BierMunchers Centennial Blonde

… Not true - here we are talking about the ounce weight which is the same in both countries. … Yes, that's what I thought too. But I'll often just Google-check some of my replies before posting them and was surprised to find in the first result https://www.conversionunites.com/converter-ounce-us-to...

Re: BierMunchers Centennial Blonde

https://www.jimsbeerkit.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=82353 There's barely any difference with American Oz and UK Oz (but they are not identical!). But just like there is 16 Oz in a Lb, in the US there is 16 Fluid Oz in a Pint (20 in Imperial measures, so Gallons are all different too.). (EDIT: ...

Re: wyeast 1187 ringwood

P.S. I was using a pack well past its best-before date for the second fermentation. I'm using the multi-step approach simply because I haven't the patience to try anything better. For yeast packs past their date I can't recommend my technique. Try "McMullen's" published earlier in the thread. One of...

Re: wyeast 1187 ringwood

For an actual comparison, each starting from a freshly opened pack intended for 25L. First off the old "flawed" technique of just giving more time (2 steps, close to best-before date, for 23L batch). This is what I published in an earlier post but scaled to better compare with the following graph: P...

^^^^^ The predicted response of someone not liking to be implicated in sparking off my long-winded babbling!

Hopefully my yeast starter predictions will be equally as accurate.

Re: wyeast 1187 ringwood

I'm really not sure what was supposed to have happened (or didn't) to be so anxious, let alone to be 'picking over the lessons learnt'. It was a fermentation, not a national crisis. Perhaps you should discuss it with this bloke . He seems to know what he's typing about :^o :lol: I've a niggle to ge...
